Honda is recalling CR-V vehicles from the 2002 to 2006 model years, due to an electrical switch in the driver's side door that could melt and cause a fire.

The Japanese car manufacturer is recalling about 489,000 vehicles in the U.S., Europe and Africa, including more than 77,000 in Britain that were made at the Wiltshire plant.
